The Foreign Policy Association and the International Law Committee of the New York City Bar Association hosted a panel entitled, “The Role of Foreign Policy in the 2016 Presidential Election”, which was moderated by Jonathan Alter, and featured Edward F. Cox, Katrina vanden Heuvel, David E. Sanger, and Gideon Rose.

With both the Democratic and Republican National Convention quickly approaching, Americans must ask themselves one important question: what kind of America do I want to live in? As the ensuing confusion and unprecedented media coverage of the 2016 Presidential Election has shown, there is a clear difference between the political parties; and in no field is this more apparent than foreign policy. Traditionally unquestioned attitudes towards trade, alliances, nuclear arms, and even America’s role in the world are now up for debate at the ballot box. The Foreign Policy Association has assembled this notable panel to discuss the role of foreign policy in this pivotal election.
